Exodus 9

Coverdale(i) 1 The LORDE sayde vnto Moses: Go in to Pharao, and speake vnto him: Thus sayeth the LORDE God of ye Hebrues: let my people go, yt they maye serue me. 2 Yf thou wilt not, but holde them longer, 3 beholde, the hande of the LORDE shalbe vpon thy catell in the felde, vpon horses, vpon Asses, vpon Camels, vpon oxen, vpon shepe with a very sore pestilence. 4 And ye LORDE shall make a diuysion betwene the catell of the Israelites & the Egipcians, so yt there shal nothinge dye of all that the children of Israel haue. 5 And ye LORDE appoynted a tyme, and sayde: Tomorow shal the LORDE do this vpon earth. 6 And the LORDE dyd the same on the morow. And there dyed of all maner of catell of the Egipcians: but of ye catell of ye childre of Israel there dyed not one. 7 And Pharao sent thither, & beholde, there was not one of the catell of Israel deed. But Pharaos hert was hardened, so yt he let not ye people go. 8 Then sayde ye LORDE vnto Moses & Aaron: Take youre handes full of asshes out of the fornace, & let Moses sprenkle it towarde heauen before Pharao, 9 that it maye be dust in all the lande of Egipte, & that there maye be sores & blaynes vpon men & vpon catell in all the lande of Egipte. 10 And they toke asshes out of ye fornace, & stode before Pharao, & Moses sprenkled it towarde heaue. Then were there sores and blaynes vpon men & vpon catell, 11 so that the Sorcerers might not stode before Moses by reason of the sores. For there were sores vpo the Sorcerers as well as vpon all the Egipcians. 12 But the LORDE hardened Pharaos hert, so that he herkened not vnto them, eue as the LORDE had sayde vnto Moses. 13 Then sayde the LORDE vnto Moses: Get the vp tomorow by tymes, & stonde before Pharao, & speake vnto him: Thus sayeth ye LORDE God of the Hebrues: let my people go, yt they maye serue me, 14 els wyll I at this tyme sende all my plages in to thine hert, & vpon thy seruautes & vpon thy people: that thou mayest knowe, yt there is none like me in all londes. 15 For I will now stretch out my hande, & smyte the & thy people wt pestilence, so yt thou shalt be roted out from the earth. 16 Yet haue I stered ye vp for this cause, euen to shew my power vpon ye, and that my name might be declared in all londes. 17 Thou holdest my people yet, & wilt not let them go, 18 beholde, tomorow aboute this tyme wyll I cause a mightie greate hayle to rayne, soch as hath not bene in the londe of Egipte, sence the tyme that it was grouded, hither to. 19 And now sende thou, & saue thy catell, & all yt thou hast in the felde: for all men & catell that shalbe founde in the felde, & not brought in to the houses, yf the hayle fall vpon them, they shall dye. 20 Now who so feared the worde of the LORDE amonge Pharaos seruauntes, caused his seruauntes & catell to flye in to the houses: 21 but loke whose hertes regarded not the worde of ye LORDE, left their seruauntes and catell in the felde. 22 Then sayde the LORDE vnto Moses: Strech out thy hande towarde heaue, that it maye hayle vpon all the lande of Egipte, vpon men, vpon catell, & vpon all herbes of the felde in the lande of Egipte. 23 So Moses stretched out his staff towarde heauen, and the LORDE caused it to thonder & hayle, so yt the fyre ranne alonge vpon the earth. Thus the LORDE hayled & rayned vpon the londe of Egipte, 24 so that the hayle & fyre wente so horrybly together, as neuer was in all the lade of Egipte, sens the tyme that there were people therin. 25 And the hayle smote the whole lande of Egipte, all that was vpon ye felde, both men & catell, & smote all the herbes vpon the felde, & brake all the trees vpon ye felde, 26 saue onely in the lande of Gosen, where the childre of Israel were, there it hayled not. 27 Then sent Pharao & called for Moses & Aaron, & sayde vnto them: Now haue I synned, ye LORDE is righteous, but I & my people are vngodly. 28 Yet praye ye vnto the LORDE, that the thonder & hayle of God maye ceasse, then wyl I let you go, that ye shal tary here no longer. 29 Moses sayde vnto him: Whan I am come out of the cite, I wyll stretch out myne handes vnto the LORDE, so shal the thonder ceasse, & there shal be nomore hayle: that thou mayest knowe, that the earth is the LORDES. 30 But I knowe, yt both thou & thy seruauntes feare not yet the LORDE God. 31 Thus the flax and the barlye were smytten: for the barlye was shot vp, & ye flax was boulled: 32 but the wheate and ye rye were not smytten, for they were late sowen. 33 So Moses wente from Pharao out of ye cite, & stretched out his hades vnto ye LORDE. And ye thoder & the hayle ceassed, & the rayne dropped not vpo the earth. 34 But wha Pharao sawe yt the rayne & thonder & hayle ceassed, he synned agayne, and herdened his hert, he & his seruauntes. 35 So Pharaos hert was hardened, yt he let not the childre of Israel go, eue as the LORDE had sayde by Moses.
